Happy snow day Friday! Funny–just yesterday I couldn’t help but think that the reality of snow after a rainfall is not nearly as attractive as the expectation of a white wonderland. And then this morning I woke up to a beautiful fresh, fluffy blanket on our cozy Montclair neighborhood. Mother Nature always knows how to throw a good curveball, eh?
It has been a good week and I’m grateful it went by rather quickly. Here’s a quick top five of things that make me happy:
- Reading fiction again. Though I enjoy reading industry books on content/influencer marketing and historical novels, there’s nothing like curling up with good fluff now and again
- Veggie heaven for dinner after an evening at the gym <3
- Buster snuggles
- Hilarious text messages with a friend
- Mochidoki ice cream!
Which of course brings me to today’s giveaway for delicious gourmet mochi ice cream. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, NYC-based Mochidoki has released two new mochi ice cream collections, including heart-shaped strawberry mochi and assorted chocolate dipped mochi ice cream.
Also I really wish Word would stop trying to correct my spelling of mochi. It is NOT mocha! Mochi ice cream is made using the highest quality sweet rice flour carefully steamed and kneaded until it becomes chewy and soft. I had the pleasure of watching mochi creation at a sushi restaurant in midtown a few weeks ago and was mesmerized by the tradition and the delicious subtly sweet flavor of the rice dessert, but even that paled in comparison to these high-end delectable treats.
They did not last through the weekend. Bryan and I single-handedly munched our way through three of these boxes in just a few days (also resulting in a famous fight entitled “what happened to the last mochi that I left in the freezer?”). This is sadly what happens when I brunch with friends.
Here’s why mochi ice cream would make the perfect treat for Valentine’s, Galentine’s, or Celebrating Singledom Day:
They make a wonderful dessert for the foodie in your life! With flavors like Raspberry White Chocolate Crunch, Salted Caramel (my personal favorite), and hand-dipped strawberry mochi ice cream drizzled with dark chocolate… I’m sorry I forgot what I was talking about…
Do you seriously need a reason to indulge in ice cream?! I didn’t think so. I’ll let these pictures do the talking.
Did I mention that these delicate treats DELIVER TO YOUR DOOR?! Please note, they are packed in dry ice so you must handle them with care (and gloves!). These pups did the trick:
And now on to the exciting part: one very lucky winner will receive three boxes of Mochidoki ice cream, including the “Love You Mochi Much” and “Love at First Bite” collections! Enter now in the Rafflecopter for your chance to win. Good luck, my friends, and happy weekending!
